  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.

    Lightroom 6.1 upgrade to 6.14 fails

    Unfortunately, LR 6.14 won't do it for you. You need at least 7.3 to read raw files from that camera. You can use Adobe's free DNG converter to convert them to DNG, which Lightroom will be able to support.

    November Upgrade

    Probably from the cloud. Installing is usually more than just putting an executable program on disk.

    November Upgrade

    You have to re-install Lightroom Classic 8.4.1 and use it to open your saved copy of the 8.4.1 catalogue.

    Import Move and Add blacked out on Import Screen

    OK. Due to a combination of LR 9 and Catalina, Lightroom is probably seeing your external disk as a "removable" device, like a card reader. This will undoubtedly be fixed, and in the mean time, you've found a workaround. Johan beat me to it.

    Import Move and Add blacked out on Import Screen

    You'll see that if you're importing directly from the card.

    How to enlarge size of circle dot for Star ratings in grid view

    I'm pretty sure you're stuck with that size. You could select an image and hit a numeric key: 0 = no stars; 1= one star; etc.

    Develop module Imac crashes when converting to HDR

    Did you make it crash while monitoring? 40-46 is pretty cool as CPU temperatures go. I'm running out of ideas. With the whole machine crashing, it's a hardware problem. Try running diagnostics on memory.

    Develop module Imac crashes when converting to HDR

    It could be that it's overheating when Lightroom drives it hard. Do you have access to a thermometer app that will monitor your CPU temperatures?

    Develop module Imac crashes when converting to HDR

    First thing to try is to go to the Performance tab of your Lightroom Preferences and turn off using the GPU. Then try HDR or Panorama again.

    LR crashing on import

    I'd recommend taking your computer to Apple and have them check it over. Like I said in an earlier post, if your whole computer is crashing, you have a hardware problem.

    Lr Classic v 9

    I'm pretty sure you're right. I can't test it, either. :)

    zoom not matching ratio size

    The way that Lightroom works, that's irrelevant. The Develop Module always creates a view from the actual raw file, so a 1:1 in develop, will always be 1:1. The problem is happening in the Library Module. Also, when I import a raw file from my Pen F using Embedded Preview, zooming the image to...

    That's what it implies. Is there any reason you want to delay changing plans until after 31 January?
